Bringing the Alternatives Industry Together in New York

We are excited to present our roster of speakers for this year’s program. As in past events, you will see a variety of presentations from industry experts, featured investors and motivational speakers.  All will offer intriguing and educational content throughout the two day event. 

It is with great pleasure that Hedge Connection, along with our partner Mirae Asset Securities (USA), invite you to join us at the 5th Annual Global Fund Forum hosted in New York on October 2nd and 3rd.  We will build on last year’s success, while taking advantage of our new venue, in offering an expanded agenda that will engage a much larger portion of the alternatives industry than previous years.

Over two days, the alternatives industry will gather to network with peers, learn from experts, and connect and build relationships. 

We look forward to welcoming you to the Global Fund Forum in October.

Praise for the Global Fund Forum

“I have been a client of Hedge Connection for many years and have attended several Global Fund Forums. Over this time I have been introduced to many high quality investors which has resulted in allocations into my FinTech focused strategy. Hedge Connection’s events are first class and their online investor introductory technology, coupled with their content distribution capabilities, has made my marketing process easy and scalable.”
